Following his winner in Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over West Ham on Sunday, BBC’s Garth Crooks is surprised Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t start Jesse Lingard.

The England international is yet to start a game for Manchester United this season but has scored two goals for the Red Devils in four substitute appearances.

Crooks told BBC: “Can anyone tell me why Jesse Lingard is still at Manchester United?

“A player who has the ability to score goals and affect the game as he clearly can should not be coming on as a substitute, filling in here and there, and playing second fiddle to anyone.”
